  1. nero 8! what if nero's never been installed?
  2. your firmware is from nov 2004 and a rarer oem type http://codeguys.rpc1.org/firmwares.html#SOHW-1653S the CSOT basic firmware is a year newer, you would have to use the patched version to crossflash your drive don't worry about messing up your drive, it's time for it to be retired if the flash doesn't help those disks are terrible
  3. well the jmicron 368 only does the pata port

  5. after trying better media I would ask for a new drive under warranty, and make sure it's not a matshita
  6. South Bridge: - 1 x floppy disk drive connector via the I/O controller supporting up to 1 floppy disk drive - 3 x SATA 3Gb/s connectors (SATAII0, SATAII1, SATAII2) supporting up to 3 SATA 3Gb/s devices - 1 x eSATA 3Gb/s port on the back panel supporting up to 1 SATA 3Gb/s device JMicron 368 chip: - 1 x IDE connector supporting ATA-133/100/66/33 and up to 2 IDE devices no jmicron driver listed but I didn't know they made just an ide chip, has esata also so I would suspect that one of the sata's is controlled by the jmicron device manager should give a clue
  7. here's a pretty picture of one of my first memorex burns(culled the disk out about a 1 1/2 years ago) Is it live? Is it Memorex? no it's almost dead
  8. I had a lot of problems with it at first(got lucky guessing the right answers) http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=4632 Cornholio wrote a beginners guide
  9. there's not a lot of choice in external drives, where are you located? region of the world? be sure and ask about particular models before buying, you don't want some crossbranded piece of crap
  10. it's not easy but I love my benq 1650 http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=178571 but then it's not that hard either be sure and use a pink trenchcoat for proper crossflashing
  11. it probably won't matter if you turn them either way or what side of the equator you are on, they won't work very well buy verbatim laptop drives have a hard time burning quality single layer dvd's, forget dual layer
  12. well basically usb is a problematic interface, the cpu has to do almost all the work, and to top that off it's a shared resource reviews of that burner were good, they reported a firewire interface also, it's a better option if you have it than usb whenever you get into quality scanning and data preservation for the long haul, you'll reevaluate that statement it might take a year or two, it did for me
  13. firmware versions can be tricky, but they don't know memorex, put a disk in, use write mode and copy and paste the right screen info into a reply(like so) until we know this it's hard to speculate
  14. data disks are better kept around 4 gigs in size, single layer media is much easier to burn and much more relaible with a lot more burners there are enough cases where you have to have dual layer, but not for data, especialy mp3's
  15. as long as you have usb2 on your laptop then an external is a better option, try the 4x burn tho
  16. welcome to the forum set imgburn for build mode, and then add files set destination for your burner see the guides
  17. welcome to the forum burning at 8X with that old of a laptop drive is a little dangerous, lower burn speed to 4x the blanks are great at 8X in a newer dvd burner, laptop burners are not as good as regular full size, they break down quicker also ps, it's better to start your own thread
  18. my mistake, what's the motherboard? and which sata controller are you running off of?
  19. must be some interesting drivers here
  20. more like the first official release 1.04 would be the latest one, non-cracked from nec http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?download_id=2358 of course I would liggy's 104bt for bitsetting dvd+r's
  21. http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtop...mp;hl=GWA-4166B might help to reflash and look at the filter driver load order?
  22. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=G...G=Google+Search firmware seems to be up to date check dma http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwar...458&lang=en http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?s=&...dpost&p=967
  23. If you had read the dual layer burn posts in this forum first you would have saved some money by buying good disks, verbatim 2.4x
  24. the vob files in a dvd video complaint file set are mpeg2 but there's more to making a playable video dvd than that
  25. dell benq 1640, great drive, poor support from dell benq's are like thoroughbreds, they like a good diet my 1620 and 1650 will burn that mid tho looks like most people just changed their drive to the benq 1640
